Flying South: A Utah Backcountry Adventure

Not many people have flown in a six-person airplane. At OK3 AIR, we take adventurous travelers on backcountry flights to southern Utah in our six-seater Cessna 206 – an exciting experience of flying in a small plane and being immersed in Utah desert wilderness. This October, we flew on an artistic reconnaissance trip to remote, dirt airstrips with our Chief Flight Instructor (Luke), Marketing Specialist (me), and the artist for the national parks (CD Cross.) While Luke is a pilot and has flown our Cessna 206 countless times, I was completely new to this airplane. I’ve flown commercially plenty of times, and admit to being a slightly nervous flier. But gliding through the sky in the Cessna was a totally freeing experience. I came to understand the allure of flying. It was peaceful and wondrous to look down at the Utah landscape from 6,000 feet and see the wrinkles of the land. As we flew south, the scenery changed from dark trees, patches of snow, and the bright orange dots of hunters’ jackets to bone-dry, red-orange rock, carved by water and jutting up into the sky. As an Eastcoaster and newcomer to Utah, I was in awe of the undeveloped land extending to the horizon, and of the sheer immensity of the canyons and cliffs. Landing on gravel runways at spots that can only be accessed by plane was a thrilling and delightful adventure.

Check out some of our pictures from the trip below. And give us a call (800-388-4445) or email us (info@ok3air.com) if you’re going to be in Park City, Utah and want to see these sites for yourself!

 

Stop #1: Mexican Mountain

Without a plane, Mexican Mountain can only be reached by backpacking for three hours from the nearest road. There is no one around for miles. It is quiet and still, besides the trickling of the small river nearby winding around the mountain. Native American petroglyphs carved into the rock can also be seen here.

Stop #2: Angel Point

Here you land on top of a mesa and gaze over the edge into the deeply carved canyons. We may or may not have thrown some rocks over the edge.

Stop #3: Hidden Splendor

On our final stop, we flew through a canyon to get to the landing strip. There, we ate lunch looking up at the red striations in the cliffs.
